Transurb is assisting Europorte and Beacon Rail in retrofitting their locomotives with the European Rail Traffic Management System.
Europorte and Beacon Rail are seeking technical assistance to equip a fleet of 10 Euro 4000 Vossloh Diesel locomotives with ETCS, with the aim to keep these locomotives running in Belgium, France and Germany. The national KVB, TBL+ and PZB systems will therefore have to be taken into consideration.
Transurb will provide assistance to Europorte and Beacon Rail regarding the first phase of the project, which consists in:
- Defining a migration strategy for the retrofit of the Euro4000 fleet with ETCS
- Preparing comprehensive technical specifications for the retrofit contract
- Delivering a technical benchmark to give Europorte an in-depth view of available technologies/manufacturers.
Transurb will assist them until the definition of the technical solution.
